About Jamie Webster

Just your average blogger. Married 2 years with two wonderful children who are 6 years apart. Little about me: I’m turning 30 this year (yikes), have had 8 foot surgeries in 8 years and have spent a little over 4 years of my life in and out of a wheel chair (or scooter). And today, I am training for a half marathon. I attribute two major changes in my life to my healing: the power of goal setting and going gluten free. I am also the owner of Geeks Get Fit where I am a Fitness Coach.

When your child’s safety becomes less of a priority than how long summer break is.

“I’m sorry, when a child’s safety becomes less of a priority than how long summer break is or isn’t, then we have a problem…” states one concerned parent from Morill, Maine. As a parent, nothing is more important to me than my child’s safety.   Sure, I hate snow days just as much as the next […]

An Open Letter to Parents: Appreciating the “Juggle”

Dear Parents, Let’s talk about the juggle. I’m sure you know what I’m talking about. Whether you are a parent or not, we all have to juggle multiple responsibilities in order to get what needs to be done… done. As a parent, you are now adding someone who is looking to you. And that’s when […]

Thoughts on Facebook Parenting: It Takes A Village to Raise a Child

Yesterday, an opinion piece was posted on CNN. The title was “Why Facebook Parenting Can Backfire”. Ignoring the information about crowdsorcing which, honestly has nothing to do with personal posts on social media, its biggest points were: how would your child like that you are airing their dirty laundry on Facebook & that posting questions […]

What I Hope My Children Understand About Terrorism

I am at a loss to describe the pain and anguish I feel for the families and friends of the slain Charlie Hebdo employees and French police officers. It is times like these that make me wonder if my decision to have children was selfish. My children are too young at this time to discuss […]

Dream Big, Plan Small – Part 2 – My goals

This year, I turned 30… something I had been dreading for years. On my 26th birthday, I called my mother crying because I was closer to 30 than I had been yesterday. Yes, I was ridiculous. No, there really was nothing that big about turning 30. And with that, I’ve embraced entering my third decade […]

Dream Big, Plan Small: Resolution Success in 2015

“The first step towards getting somewhere is to decide that you are not going to stay where you are.” – J.P. Morgan The word “fail” means that you were unsuccessful in achieving one’s goal. But there is another meaning to the word “fail”, and that is neglecting to do something. Sometimes we fail because we are afraid […]
